Location: Africa, Disney's Animal Kingdom

This week Disney's Animal Kingdom celebrated it's 15th anniversary! In honor of this event, we will be traveling over to the Animal Kingdom that embodies the spirit of the park more than any other: Africa!

Most guests are often eager to get from one attraction to the next in the park without exploring some of the true treasures of the park: the walking trails. We've briefly touched on the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail in the past, but today we will be taking a look at not the storyline that goes with it, but the rockwork. Rockwork? That's right! The rockwork found throughout Disney's Animal Kingdom is extremely detailed to the point that most guests can't tell what is real and what isn't.

In fact, we've taken a look both in my book, From Screen To Theme, and on this site about how the rockwork in Disney's Animal Kingdom has been so detailed it shapes different Disney characters (In the past we've looked at Baloo from The Jungle Book and Mrs. Potts and Chip from Beauty and the Beast). While in the gorilla section of Pangani Forest you will cross a bridge from the inside viewing area to the exterior viewing area. Just after passing the bridge, turn to your right and look towards the entrance to the bridge to find the following rock formation:

Jafar in Disney's Animal Kingdom

What is that? The real question is who is it? Well, with a little imagination you will see that that, my friends, is Jafar from 1992's Aladdin!
